17 September - 5 October 2014
Opening Wednesday 17 September, 6.30-8pm
For this series, I was interested in exploring the semi-abstract possibilities in natural subjects. I chose floral forms, for their endless variety of shape and texture. These were starting points to exploring their visual possibilities by playing with scale, colour, light and shadow.
Enlarging and close-cropping, with their effect of removing the outer boundaries, enabled me to examine familiar subjects in a new light. The work has evolved from pieces where the original subject is very recognisable to those that are more ambiguous, where the natural forms give the framework for expressions of light, translucence and colour.
